Let our treasury management work for you
What you can expect
This is an agreement to buy one currency against selling another at an agreed price for settlement in two working days, although same day or next day delivery is available in some currencies.
We can structure forward contracts for any period up to one year to eliminate your exchange rate risk during that period. Forward contracts are available in all major currencies and can be either fixed or option dated.
If you are a financial institution in Botswana and have Botswana Government securities, we can arrange a currency repurchase agreement to help you access the foreign cash you need. We can lend for up to 12 months. You will need to secure the loan against the securities you hold.
The Bank of Botswana encourages this form of collateralised lending.
We can provide you with regular market updates and access to our award winning research, including conference calls with our economics team.
Government securities: We are the leading primary dealer in Government of Botswana securities. You can buy these securities through us in both the primary and secondary markets. We cover everything from 91-day treasury bills to 15-year bonds.
